    The Oliva Series V in a double robust is my absolute favorite smoke. I am sure you will enjoy it if you have
    not tried it before.

    A very nice selection and looks like great start to the weekend. Had quite a few of these and all are quality smokes. Enjoy your “me” time.

    Thanks. I smoke cigars, mainly on the weekends. $10 and up cigars, are too expensive to smoke on a daily basis. I do buy a handul of budget sticks as well.

    Nothing says budget to me like shopping JR Cigars on line. Join their JR Plus and shipping is free. Like Amazon Prime for cigar smokers. I like to buy boxes at a time, and these guys pretty much have it all. I do patronize my local cigar lounge and buy cigars there, but for high volume cigar consumption, they are great. I have used other on-line sites, but this is my go to.

    I subsribe to JR's youtube channel. Lots of good cigar reviews. The online store is pretty good too.
    There is a good Cigar shop, not far from me here in Tucson. They have a good selection, and lounge, but they are not shy about their pricing.
    I can save 10-20% shopping online.

    One of my new favorite "Budget smokes", are these Cusano M1's. It's got an Ecudorian Connecticut wrapper, with Honduran fillers. Online, you can get them as low as $40 a bundle.($2.00 a stick). My local cigar shop charges $3.15 each plus tax. 20190504_135954.jpeg

    For those that like , "Rich & Earthy", cigars, I highly recommend the ,My Father Le Bijou 1922. I'm grilling up some Tenderloin, drinking ice cold beer, and just finished up the Le Bijou. Great smoke, but pricey.

    Don Pepin/My Father rolls some excellent cigars. I like quite a bit that comes out of that factory..

    Not sure how I missed this post...

    you have some good taste! the Partagas Serie D #4 is no doubt one of the finest sticks on the planet... Love the El Rey petite's as well..

    I will sometimes get 3-4 sticks in on a weekend day.. but I'm typically happy to just get 1 in a day otherwise and will occasionally miss a day if the weather is bad, etc.. I probably go through 200-250 total sticks a year...

    youve got a serious habit my man! It sounds like youre going through 200 every 6 weeks or so..

    Not an aficionado like @Royal27 is. But a big fan of San Cristobal Revelations and Rocky Patel Cameroon’s. But a true Monte Cristo No. 2, I don’t know what’s better.

    Just finished off the Drew Estate undergrown Maduro, and a couple of cold ones, to cap off the week.
    For a $10 stick, it was disappointing. I like flavorful, and full bodied Cigars, but it was somewhat bitter, and too peppery for my taste.
    That is the drawback of trying different smokes. Sometimes they are good, other times, not so much.
    I have been eyeballing the shelf of Davidoff cigars, but damn, are those things expensive. $20-30 a stick for many of them. Too much for this beer budget boy.

    The cigar habit would pay for a safari, but then the safari would not be what I have come to enjoy without the cigars. What a first world paradox.

    Rush Limbaugh is a big Cigar smoker, and Monte Cristo guy. I bet he smokes over $100 a day in stogies.

    I would too, if I was a millionaire.

    We've been having this wonderfully cool and relative to AZ wet spring, and it continues this evening. Perfect night to enjoy one of the treats that arrived this week. A Quintero Nacionale. Smaller stick with what I'd call and earthy flavor to it. A box of 25 for $65, so can't go too wrong at less than $3 per.

    Big storm ripped through tucson at about 7:00. Wind was so bad it snuffed out the flames on my BBQ.

    Is that a Corona size?
